IHOP pancakes: Saving babies lives?

By Melissa Bell

Best headline Tuesday comes from WALB News, an Albany television station: "IHOP pancakes are saving babies lives."

I picture a pancake with a syrup cape, a butter-pat shield and a plastic-knife sword.

It's not the actual breakfast meal that's resuscitating babies, but donations given in exchange for free pancakes at any International House of Pancakes. The restaurant chain wants to raise $2.3 million dollars for the Children's Miracle Network on the sixth annual "National Pancake Day." All proceeds will be given to buy premature baby diapers, children hospital equipment and help mothers with high medical bills.

There's an IHOP just 2 miles from the Post's office. Who's meeting me for a short stack at lunch?
